Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-03-16 20:28:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050308 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-5

Description of problem:
After doing "yum install tomcat5" then "/etc/init.d/tomcat5 start" tomcat5 is running.  But connecting to http://localhost:8080 just returns a blank page.

It would be better to either install a default page that simply says "if you see this page, Tomcat is running" or make tomcat5 depend on tomcat5-webapps which does install a page like this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install tomcat5
2. /etc/init.d/tomcat5 start
3. surf to http://localhost:8080

Actual Results:  blank page

Expected Results:  test page confirming that tomcat works

Additional info:

Workaround: "yum install tomcat5-webapps"

Yes, providing a default test page (that perhaps mention the webapps subpackage)
is an idea that I like.

But you should suggest that usptream so that J. C. fixes the jpackage.org package.
As soom as he does that I will import the fix into ours.

Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-02-06 18:53:38 UTC
I suggested this idea upstream but Jason Corley was strongly against the idea:

> Absolutely not.  I don't want a default test page on my server
> installs, that's what I'll be deploying.  I'm a strong -1 on this
> idea.

Closing as WONTFIX.
